This control lets you quickly play through clips at different speeds, in fast and slow
motion. It also shifts the pitch of audio as it plays at varying speeds. In slow motion,
this can make it easier to locate specific words and sounds for editing.
Drag the slider to the right to fast-forward and to the left to rewind. Playback speed
varies depending on the distance of the slider from the center of the control. When the
slider is green, playback speed is normal (or 100 percent speed). The further away from
the center you move, the faster the playback speed. The keyboard equivalents of the
shuttle control are the J, K, and L keys. For more information, see “
Shuttling Through a
Clip or Sequence
” on page 103.
